Ray Charles Hide nor Hair Lyrics

Hide nor hair
Oh, I was lying in the bed with fever
And I was burning up inside
My baby walked in my bedroom
And I could hardly open my eyes
She said she was going to the pawn shop
Just across the track
She started packing some clothes in a hurry
And then she said she would be right back
But I ain't seen hide nor hair my baby since that day
Well I ain't seen hide nor hair my baby since she went away
I remember so well when she slammed the door
But the girl didn't make it back no more
I ain't seen hide nor hair my baby since that day
Well I waited for her twenty four hours
And I was just about to starve to death
It didn't look like she was coming back
So I had to look out for myself
Well I called the police department
To find out what they knew
They said, no by heck but we will get her yet
Because they were looking for her too.
But I ain't seen hide nor hair my baby since that day
Well I ain't seen hide nor hair my baby since she went away
Well I don't know what happened across the track
But I know my baby didn't make it back
I ain't seen hide nor hair my baby since that day.
Well I called my Dr. Foster
And when the girl answered the phone
I got a funny feeling
The way she said Dr. Foster had gone
She said he left with a lady patient
About twenty four hours ago
I added two and two and here's what I got
I got I'll never see that girl no mo'
But I ain't seen hide nor hair my baby since that day
Well I ain't seen hide nor hair my baby since she went away
If Dr. foster has got her then I know I'm through
Cause he's got medicine and money too.
I ain't seen hide nor hair my baby since that day.
Whoa no
